It is made out of wood with multipul circular slits. The lamp is white atop a black cylander base.

Materials: In order to complete this project I used the lazer cutter to create the main body of the lamp, and I used the 3D printer in order to make the base. I also utilized a motor, some LED lights, and wires.


Tools: In the process of creating my lamp I used the lazer cutter, 3D printer, and wire cutters..

What was the most challenging part of the project?: The most challenging part of the project was time managment.

Were there times when things didn’t work as you expected?: One thing that didn't go as expected was the shape of the base.

What did you do to resolve the problems you ran into?: To fix the base I altered the origional design and printed a new one. 

What was the most fun?: The thing I found the most fun was putting together the box that I lazer cut.

What did you learn by going through this process?: By going through this process I learned how to use a 3D printer and a lazer cutter.

Were there new tools you had to learn about in order to complete the project?: To complete this project I had to learn how to use the 3D printer as well as the lazer cutter.

In your attempts to make things work, did you find yourself trying new strategies or approaches?:To make the way the light flowed out more efficient I made the slits circular instead of rectangular. 

What would you change?: If you had the time and resources, what would you change about your project if given the opportunity?:  I would not change anything about my project because I really like it the way it is.

<![CDATA[Robot]]>Thu, 12 Nov 2015 01:10:12 GMThttp://cgeorge521.weebly.com/creators-studio/robotProject Description: This project is a robot on four wheels with a head made of a ball and LED eyes.

Materials: We used a ball from the P.E. department, a hummingbird, wires, two LED's, the base of a car that has four wheels, a motor, and in order to activate it a computer is needed. 


Tools: In our project we used a soldering iron, a hot glue gun, and wire cutters.

What was the most challenging part of the project?: The most challenging part of the project was getting the car to move.

Were there times when things didn’t work as you expected?: Something that didn't go as expected was when the wheels did not move.

What did you do to resolve the problems you ran into?: To resolve this problem we took off our body of the robot.

What was the most fun?: The thing I found the most fun was getting to work with Elsa and Ella.

What did you learn by going through this process?: During this process I learned how to use a hummingbird.

Were there new tools you had to learn about in order to complete the project?: I already knew how to use all the tools for this project. 

In your attempts to make things work, did you find yourself trying new strategies or approaches?: In order to get our robot to work we had to take off the body of our robot and place its head onto the wheel platform so that it would move.

What would you change?: If you had the time and resources, what would you change about your project if given the opportunity?:  If we had the time my group would have tried to make our robot stop and turn when it sensed an object in front of it.

Materials: The materials I used were orange construction paper, an iPhone box, foam board, and a wooden skewer.


Tools: In my project I used a hot glue gun, scissors, and an eyelet crimped.

What was the most challenging part of the project?: The most challenging part of the project was making my machine run smoothly because it kept getting stuck.

Were there times when things didn’t work as you expected?: Something that didn't go as expected was the size of my fish.
